[COLOR="Navy"]I agree about Fantastics not being for colored pencils. Then are for blending inks.
I use these[/
COLOR]and have never had an issue with them. I use them for everything..pencil work..colored pencil..pastels..I buy one of the large assorted packs and then usually a couple of smaller individual sized packs maybe once or twice a year ( depends on how much work I do LOL). They last a really long time if you "clean" them off well . They seem to be relatively inexpensive at Blicks as compared to the the price at some other places..
I personally think paper and pencil choices are probably more important than the stumps you use. Paper choice and pencil quality can make or break you...just trust me on that LOL
